From Novice to Node in One Semester or Less

by

Suber tweet
When I started out on this journey with the Faculty Collaboratives Steering Committee and the OpenLearning17 cMOOC, I found out that in order to fully participate, we needed to have a blog and a Twitter account.  We would have weekly Twitter chats (whatever those were…) and our blogs would be linked to the main site […]

Few people are actually voiceless

by

One of the concepts we hear/use a lot – particularly in social equity contexts – is that of “giving voice to the voiceless.”  I was at a YWCA luncheon honoring Richmond women and one of them spoke about her experience growing up with her autistic brother, and how the experience of helping him actually helped her.  She also... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/05/16/few-people-are-actually-voiceless/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=13262&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Bless our hearts

by

I tried to find her tweet but I couldn’t.  Several days ago Tressie McMillan Cottom was dealing with a white woman who was spouting some nonsense on Twitter.  If you know Tressie, you can guess how the conversation went.  Somewhere in the middle of the back and forth retweets, Tressie tweeted something like this (paraphrased): “white... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/05/16/bless-our-hearts/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=13245&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Therapy

by

I was listening to a successful, high-powered woman executive speak at a luncheon the other day.  Someone asked her about the best thing she ever did for personal development (not to be confused with “taking-a-bath-to-relax” self-care or strictly professional development) and she said “start going to a counselor; if things aren’t going well in your professional... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/05/15/therapy/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=13198&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Learning Communities, Learning Selves

I realize that it has been months since I last posted to this blog. My scholarly work, my time-wasting, my disorganization and my shifted focus took me away from the Open Learning initiative that was at the origin of this blog. That does not mean that I have not been thinking about open learning or … <a href="https://rrdaniel2-open-learning.blog/2017/05/12/learning-communities-learning-selves/">Continue reading <span>Learning Communities, Learning Selves</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=rrdaniel2-open-learning.blog&blog=123078728&post=414&subd=rrdaniel2openlearning&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

On the nonlinear way my mind works

by

I always get a thrill on those occasions where, for a while, many things I read or hear or see seem to be on the same topic. Or maybe it’s just my mind seeing connections. This is a longish post, … Continue reading →

Using Hypothes.is to Help Students Read Scholarly Papers

by

One of the things I’ve learned from #OpenLearning17 has been the ability to use Hypothes.is to collaboratively read something online.  Hypothes.is is free software that allows one to annotate any webpage as one is reading.  The annotations are a layer … Continue reading →

OpenLearning17–an end and a beginning

by

We are in the last week of OpenLearning17. It’s been a marathon of learning and connecting, and the experience has reminded that I’m not built for marathons. The only sport I was ever remotely skilled in was fencing–short bouts where it’s not about endurance, but rather strategy, sizing up your opponent quickly and leveraging your individual … <a href="https://sueerickson.wordpress.com/2017/04/24/openlearning17-an-end-and-a-beginning/">Continue reading <span>OpenLearning17–an end and a beginning</span> <span>→</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=sueerickson.wordpress.com&blog=122834108&post=96&subd=sueerickson&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">

Laying Out My Pieces

by

A quick thought on an Easter morning – When did we stop asking questions? Or did we ever start? I was in the doctor’s office the other day for a routine check-up. The nurse, who was going through the standard screening questions, said: “And you don’t smoke or drink alcohol.” I responded, “Well, I don’t smoke but... <div><a href="https://googleguacamole.wordpress.com/2017/04/16/laying-out-my-pieces/">Read More</a></div><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=googleguacamole.wordpress.com&blog=76251458&post=13044&subd=googleguacamole&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1">
